       Harry Maguire is relishing the future with Leicester

The striker has looked nowhere near his best this season, having played so much football over the past few years, and there have been signs that he is maybe a little bit worn out.

If the match confirmed what Southgate knows about Rashford, it also showed the England manager that there is clear daylight in the pecking order between Jordan Pickford and Jack Butland.

The 22-year-old Tottenham midfielder played the entirety of England's first game since the World Cup on Saturday but will miss the clash with Switzerland at the King Power Stadium, instead returning to his club for treatment. Old stagers Valon Behrami and Gelson Fernandes both announced their global retirements after being left out of the current get-together, and fellow World Cup squad members Blerim Dzemaili and Josip Drmic were also overlooked.

He's had a minor strain but I think he should be fine for his club this weekend.

Marcus Rashford is ahead of where Cristiano Ronaldo and Harry Kane were at his age - but needs to be made to feel "important". He's had a lot of attention on him over the summer, over possibly going to other teams but I'm glad he's stayed here.

But Southgate defended the United boss and said: 'Jose thinks the world of Marcus. "It is just down to me working hard in training".

Harry's in that bracket where if he's not scoring sometimes he can look a bit sluggish and even just mentally it would do him good.

"It's great we can all shout at each other and tell each other to improve like we did", he said.

"Some of the stepovers and things Ronaldo was doing at that age, he wasn't converting them into the number of goals, so we have got to give him time to develop".

"We spoke at half-time and we weren't happy with how we were playing, but we took control after the break and got the goal". He still got goals but he's never quite looked like the Harry Kane we know.

Leicester have had a solid start to the season, winning two of their first four games, sandwiched between an away loss to Manchester United and a home defeat to Liverpool, going down 2-1 on both occasions.

But there is mental fatigue. He's probably frustrated in himself with his performances but it is just that mental fatigue as to why he needs a mental break, and he will come back better and fresher.
